    The free bush to beach walk was the highlight of my experience with you guys. Todd Tarzan Tuesday, the guide, knew exactly when the whales would turn up, where the dolphins were and where the wallaby would be. Thank you so much for all that you did to make my every day in such a good way.

    Great place to stay, close to the beach and shops and bars. The staff were all incredibly friendly and very helpful. Todd took us on a free walking tour to the lighthouse which was great to have a local to point out the best places to spot whales, dolphins and turtles, we saw them all!

    Dirty kitchen! Dirty towels in the kitchen! Dirty toilets! I stayed in my time in Australia in a lot of YHA Hostels. This one was the dirtiest.

    Great location, which is always the most imp factor for me when choosing a hostel. Whether you're alone or with other people, great hostel overall. Very friendly, helpful staff.

    Great location, super friendly and helpful staff, good atmosphere even in the middle of winter (not that winter really exists in Byron!). Clean dorms and bathrooms, really can't fault the place! Will definitely be back.

    Customer Reviews on

    YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That's why when you make a booking on, you will be invited by email to rate your hostel stay upon checkout. These ratings are then published, unedited, whether you give the hostel a good or bad review. Average ratings are calculated based on the last 50 customer submissions.

    We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments, images and tips provided. We don't edit your comments and will publish them whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish the comments online:

    Inappropriate or offensive comments

    Any inappropriate and/or offensive comments won't be published.

    Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language or swearing.

    Unsubstantiated or incorrect claims

    Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated or incorrect. YHA Australia will investigate the claim prior to publishing online. Examples where we have not published a comment for this reason are mostly due to guests mixing up different hostels they had booked.

    Comments including staff names

    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment. First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

    If a negative comment is made, all reference to a particular staff member will be removed.

    Changed circumstances in hostels

    If there have been any major changes such as hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.

    Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
